Well, Yahoo today decided to dump the one cool project they had going for them. At Vista’s launch, they showed off a WPF version of their Chat program that blew everyone away. They didn’t even actually build it, the people from Frog Design did. And they spent the last two years with their thumbs up their butts about it, taking forever to release an alpha, then a beta.
Claiming that it won’t run on XP (which is BS, because WPF is in .NET 3.0, which runs just fine on XP, Yahoo has thrown the code out the window, and will not be releasing a final version.
It’s just too bad too. I was actually looking forward to using the released version. Which would bring the number of Yahoo! products I use to… 1.
